Candlelight tours of the Chief Vann House Historic Site return this season on Friday, Dec. 10, and Saturday the 11th, from 5 to 8:30 p.m. Enjoy live music and authentic 19th century decorations celebrating the past Moravian missionary Christmases who operated a school for Cherokee kids from 1800 until 1835. In 1804, Cherokee Chief James Vann was the wealthiest man in the Cherokee Nation and built a three-story brick house in the center of his 800-acre plantation.

For the safety of all our volunteers and other guests, we do request that all guests able to do so please wear proper masks covering the nose and mouth. This is a well-attended event (as many as 400 guests a night) and the Vann House has limited space inside, making for a very close event.

This event will be held rain or snow. We hope to see you then! From all our staff and volunteers, we wish you a peaceful and safe holiday season.

Regular admission: $6.50 to $5.50 plus tax, children 5 and under are free.
